The 85 Chevy 4x4 is a triumph of American engineering. This powerful, single cab vehicle features an Isuzu 14, 2-barrel engine and more attitude than most can handle. While it has a short bed, it helps define the term 'compact truck'.
This truck is perfect for the busy-homeowner to even snooty artists. The bed, while short, is perfect for hauling brush and debris. Store-owners will find the bed perfect for transporting boxes of merchandise. And even the most disconcerting artist will be forced to admit the useful-ness of the machine when it's the only means of transporting artwork to a gallery.
This 1985 model was top of the line; Now, however, it lacks several things most newer cars have, such as CD/MP3 players. If this is important to you, be sure to plan ahead for installing a suitable sound-system to your needs. Investing in something like an mp3 player, such as an iPod, could save on this cost with the aid of an FM transmitter.
A word of advice; Bigger systems might look flashier, but the deep, booming sounds will slowly shake the cars bolts loose, along with simply turning off most any woman who glances it. An iPod/FM transmitter combo can be cheaper, emphasis on can, but comes with the drawback of picking up other FM stations. This means the real radio can cut into, play over, and drown out your MP3 player, along with picking up the frequency of other MP3 players using an FM transmitter. This can be fun, to find behind or in front of a friend in another car who's playing personal DJ, but also can be awful; A poorly timed red light can fill your truck with ear-destroying hertz from your neighbors iPod with an 8-Mile soundtrack.
The transmission has been known to give some issue to those who do not keep a well-maintained truck. Keeping adequate amounts of fluids will aid in preventing such issues. If you cannot keep your truck in tip-top condition, befriending a mechanic would behove you.
The 85 Chevy 4x4 is just that; A truck made in 1985. While these older trucks are built to last, they're built to last on regular maintenance by someone who likes trucks enough to spend week ends starting into one. Purchasing a truck like this is like picking out a pet; A friend who will last until they physically extinguish, but just like a pet, they need things to live or else, they wear out faster than you'd believe. Before writing off vehicles like this, remember that every car and truck requires basics to run--such a fuel--and basic maintenance to run it's best. Your own, human body functions this same way, and requires a lot more work to keep in good shape.
The 1985 Chevy 4x4 is a great truck for a small family or single person on the move. With proper care, this truck could easily last twice as long as it already has. If you want a friend for life, you just found one.
